The FujiFilm S9600 is a mid-level DSLR camera. A DSLR, which stands for digital single-lens reflex, is a higher-quality camera than a simple point and shoot model. This increased image quality makes DSLRs the preferred type of camera for professional photography. Using the S9600, however, is actually quite simple with the camera's automatic mode. In this mode, the camera behaves very similar to a point and shoot. For advanced users, it also has a completely customisable manual mode.
